Get a cheap code reader and pull the codes. It could be anything from bad plugs/wires, fuel pressure, vacuum leaks, any number of sensors, etc. etc. etc...

Is that the only problem? Does it run badly too, or is it fine once it starts?

You have a vaccuum leak. :cool: If you did any work on it or had any work done on it recently, reseal the IC tubes. :cool:

Yeah, it sounds like some unmetered air is sneaking in. Probably either a typical vacuum leak or a failing IAC motor (which effectively creates a vacuum leak).
